Essential Info

A home theater doesn't need to be a cluttered, crowded area. The Harmony 890 RF Color Remote not only controls 15 devices, thus replacing your existing remotes, it sends radio-frequency (RF) signals in addition to infrared (IR) signals, so you can keep your stacks of components behind cabinet or closet doors up to 100 feet away. Just press one of the Activity buttons, and the Harmony 890 RF Color Remote automatically sets up your entire entertainment system, even pressing Play, and it turns off components not required for your selected activity. The color LCD screen provides for easy control, and the remote is even rechargeable, so you won't need to be replacing batteries constantly.

    With a wireless range of up to 100 feet, the Harmony 890 remote sends RF commands to a wireless receiver, which then blasts infrared signals to the components. You can even add extra receivers for even greater range or to control multiple entertainment systems. The Harmony 890's color LCD is both functional and stylish, with user-customizable backgrounds, button icons and text. There is ample space for up to eight custom activities or controls, and the on-screen battery level indicator even shows you the status of its charge. The Harmony 890 RF Color Remote supports thousands of brands and products, so with a single remote, you'll be able to control 15 devices, including televisions, plasmas, projectors, DVRs, PVRs, laserdisc players, satellites, cable boxes, amplifiers, receivers, VCRs, DVD players, computers, and even lighting controls! Colorful icons accompany text on the LCD screen to allow for quick and easy command of home-entertainment equipment and household appliances that may be out of range for a traditional infrared remote.

    The Harmony 890 is simple to set up: Connect your remote to your computer via the included USB cable. Enter your equipment model numbers and answer questions about how you watch TV or listen to music. The Harmony Setup Wizard walks you through the process, step by step. Automatic updates are available through the Harmony website, as well.

    The Harmony 890 RF Color Remote puts you in control of your entire audio-video system. Optimized for complicated HDTV and PVR systems, the Harmony 890 helps you tame tough configurations like switching your television between video aspect ratios depending on the program source. The interactive color display lets you quickly choose a 16:9 ratio for movies and HDTV, or a standard 4:3 ratio for basic television programming.

    You won't be constantly restocking your battery supply when this remote is adorning your coffee table. The Harmony 890 includes a sleek docking station that keeps the remote's included rechargeable lithium-ion battery fully charged. The remote will work for a week without recharging under normal use, but the included docking station allows remote to be used while charging.

    Designed with brushed chrome and charcoal accents, a color LCD display and a low-profile recharging station, the Harmony 890 RF Color Remote will complement your most advanced audio-video components. Featuring a comfort grip shape and a centered directional pad, it fits easily in your hand and naturally guides you to the most frequently used controls. Even the buttons are sculpted to help you locate them by feel, not sight.

    In-House Product Review
    "Infrared (IR) has been the standard for remote controls for as long as I can recall, and if you remember otherwise, well, I'm sure you can regale me with tales of 8-track tapes and hula-hoops, too. While IR has worked well over the years, the Logitech Harmony 890 Universal Remote ushers in the next generation of remote controls. The Harmony 890 is a radio-frequency (RF) version of the popular Harmony 880, Logitech's first web-programmable, color screen, rechargeable IR remote control. Not limited to line-of-sight like IR, RF signals can reach equipment behind walls and cabinets, granting greater flexibility and control to any home theater." Read More...

    Harmony 890 set-up is time consuming. Putting the battery pack cover back on is maddening! Please redesign this in your next models.
    Mark Smith -- Jacksonville Beach FL   2/28/2009
    I own several Harmony remotes and I believe they have been overrated here. I have a TV, Cable, AppleTV connected to an All-in-one DVD/Stereo amplifier a Denon THE GOOD: Overall, much better than having multiple remotes. That it can be programmed using software is great. Recognizes _almost_ all hardware I've thrown at it. IR extenders are convenient. THE BAD: Setup can be maddening: I've setup 4 or 5 of these now and it still takes an entire evening to get the kinks worked out, sometimes more. Each software change takes two uploads: one to the extender, and one to the remote... too much plugging/unplugging. The setup software is, sorry Logitech, but, it is horrible. Did they have a circuit engineer design the user interface, or what? I was lost lost trying to figure out where to change what. Counterintuitive. They really need to borrow a Mac UI person for a day or two. THE IDEAL still waiting for this one: I want an iPhone AV Remote app. I take photos of my AV equipment's model numbers, the app reads the photos and sets itself up automatically using a social network. The only hardware needed will be a small WiFi to IR converter. How cool and easy is that? Someone will make a lot of money with that one.

    Had some doubt about all in one device, but needed something with RF to get through cabinet. Took a while to program, but not hard. Actually works much better than expected for macros. Best part is that does NOT need to be pointed at devices for 20 seconds like IR remotes. People would sometimes push macro button then turn remote in different direction causing on one half of things to be turned on messing up the whole process. This remote works great! Only drawback I see is that some buttons on original remote may be on 5-6th screen on this all in one remote.
    JEFFREY -- honolulu, HI   7/8/2007
    Excellent remote. Software application to program the remote is a little slow and clunky.
    JOHN -- bulverde, TX   6/20/2007
    Excellent product. Very Pleased
    CHRIS -- great neck, NY   5/30/2007
